Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield shared an update on his shoulder injury.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday ahead of the Browns’ practice session, Mayfield started with a light note.

“Attached, still,” Mayfield joked when asked how he felt about his left shoulder.

The 26-year-old sustained the injury during the home game on Sunday against the Houston Texans. He collided with Texans safety Justin Reid in the second quarter.

For a moment, Cleveland’s crowd held their breath, gasping while seeing their starting quarterback hurt. He had to be sidelined for some time.

But Mayfield persisted, and he returned to the field to help his team secure a 31-21 victory.

The 2017 Heisman Trophy winner is now focusing on the team’s upcoming Week 3 home game against the Chicago Bears this Sunday.

“Just doing a good job of getting treatment and doing all that, taking care of my body and the things that I need to … just doing all the things that I have been doing to just get ready for Sunday,” said Mayfield.

Head coach Kevin Stefanski gave his assessment of the situation.

“That was kind of an awkward play,” Stefanski said. “I think their defender looked to single him out, which listen, he’s trying to get him on the ground so you become defenseless in that moment. There’s definitely plays where a defense is going to try to knock you out of the game, that’s just the nature of the game. Just be careful.”
